DES usage as a “gender management”
1985 Study Abstract
A synthetic ovarian hormone, diethylstilbestrol, was used to reduce the desire to cross-dress in a 65-year-old, gender-dysphoric transvestite.
Antiandrogens may be of use in treating patients refractory or inaccessible to other clinical approaches.
